Besides the Warfighters' Perspectives, the policy responses to five other factors (Strategic Alliances/ Partnerships, Supply Chain Management, Performance Metrics, TLCSM, and PB Contracting) are likely to yield large benefits.
ENABLER: Total Life Cycle Support Management (TLCSM).
(93) Program leadership must be vested in a single agent with the authority, responsibility, and accountability for ensuring effective TLCSM of all vaccines that protect war fighters against natural and weaponized pathogens.
In addition to raising overall program funding, each infectious-disease vaccine should be funded as a separate line item in the Future Years Defense Program to ensure TLCSM. (94) These are the most important actions the DOD must take.

The TLCSM approach emphasizes an early focus on weapons system sustainment within the overall acquisition life cycle.
The TLCSM mandated a new focus by program managers toward the entire life cycle, firmly linking acquisition and sustainment activities into an integrated process.
To ensure the requisite priority on sustainment issues within program offices and to ease the PBL implementation efforts, the concept of TLCSM was promulgated (Aldridge, 2003).
For the same 26 programs surveyed, 16 identified performance metrics as an enabler; 14 identified performancebased contracting, TLCSM, and COTS/best commercial practices as enablers; 11 identified partnering as an enabler; and 8 identified supply chain management and RTOC as enablers.
This guide provides a reference for PMs and their teams to design in and then assess the effectiveness of their TLCSM responsibilities in implementing PBL strategies anywhere along the system's life cycle.
